  • Dear Sir Ours is the society of 30 members. Recently election is declared by election authority. Now we have two members of earlier committee which were disqualified under 73 CA and 78a but they were allowed to vote by Registrar. They can not contest election for 5 years. Also we have two defaulters , we have send them notices but have not taken action under 101 so registrar allowed them to vote and contest. One defaulter has not paid single rupee since beginning. What action can be taken.? Registrar supported them saying the case is pending for judgement in my court so defaulters can do anything. Do we have to inform to SCEA about this gross irregularity. To one member we have sent notices by post three times to settle his dues.

  • Hello, Our society with less than 100 members had held AGM in September and the old committee term got expired but the same has not been informed to the registrar to conduct the election. Now we have defaulted and it's over 2 months but still no action is taken ahead. Below is my query. 1) Do we need to submit an apology letter and/or submit the relevant forms with voter list and request the registrar to conduct election. 2) Do we need to pay any penalty charges? If yes than how much? Is this penalty recoverable from old committee since it is default on their part? 3) During AGM people selected new committee which although is illegal but can the so called new committee submit the forms to the registrar and request to conduct election. Thanks and Regards, Ritesh Trivedi

  • Dear Sir, Our society is in Dombivli, Thane, Maharashtra and has 79 members. Due to unawareness of the new election rules, we had our society AGM in 2016 as usual and elected the new managing committee for 5 year term. When we visited The Thane District Cooperative Bank for updating authorized signatories of our society account, we were informed that we have not conducted the elections as per new bye laws and need to get the elections regularized or approved by Registrar of the society without which the bank can not update the records. Please guide us a way forward in the matter as managing committee is already functioning since 2016 and what needs to be done to get the bank account operative. Secondly, what is the benefit to the society of having representative from Registrar of societies in electing society managing committee when society is functioning smoothly and if there is no opposition and eligible members get elected unopposed. Further, we learnt that there is amendment to this elections bye laws, since it is being debated in various forums as there is no much benefit particularly to the Housing Societies, is it true?
